To cut a very long story short…
A friend and I went on a train ride and it cost us £68 each it would
have been twice the price but we waitied 4 minutes to travel in the ‘off peak
zone’. On the return journey the train broke down and we were all stuck in the dark
with glow sticks for 4 hours, then we were escorted to nearest station in
the dark where we waited on the station for 1 hour. Transferred to nearest line via
coach a further hour. Waited at station this for 45 minutes. A train, train, tube,
tube, train we finally managed to get the last running train to within 50mins away
from home at 2:30 in the morning. After a bit of haggling with the taxi driver I mananged
to haggle him down from £65 to £60 which I ended up giving him a £5 tip ‘cos he was
a nice bloke.
I complained to the train company ‘Virgin Rail’ for compensation and have just recieved
£18 IN RAIL VOUCHERS! So now I hate Virgin Rail and you should too!
